Project 1 (Appropriation): Water and Ice

Filed under: Video Art — Mia @ 10:02 am

This first critiqued project in Video Art is based on appropriated video clips. I selected clips from the Internet and from nature DVDs. One video artist on Vimeo, Don Whitaker, experiments with slit-scan style videos. He takes movies of the Oregon coastline and runs them through a script he wrote in the program, Processing. I used three segments of his Surfing the 4th Dimension. HandBrake was helpful in ripping segments of BBC’s Planet Earth DVDs. Two YouTube audio tracks accompany Enya’s Aniron, an iTunes purchase.

Software and conversion resources for this project were:
Final Cut Pro
Wondershare AllMyTube

Water and Ice is an environmental statement of awareness: Earth can slip away, faster than it evolved.
